Jason Bentley, KCRW's music director and host of the iconic station's flagship music program Morning Becomes Eclectic has been spinning Luisa Maita's forthcoming album Lero-Lero recently. The track "Alento" immediately captured Bentley's attention the first time he heard it. The track is featured and streaming in full on the KCRW blog.
"Her voice is soulful and jazzy and the spirit of São Paulo gives the music a tropical edge that is vibrant and enticing." - KCRW
